The Danger of Manufactured Narratives
Most conservatives, or people on the right, knew something was off. The Biden DoJ and the FBI announced that the nation’s number one danger and concern was “white supremacist” groups who might commit some kind of domestic terrorist attack.
While the media quickly jumped on this announcement and spread the messaging far and wide, and millions of Americans believed that it must be a real concern, conservatives knew it wasn’t true.
Nobody I spoke to, in the weeks after the “warning” was issued had ever even met a “white supremacist.” More importantly, nobody had met anyone who even made concerning or radical statements. In other words, from personal experience, and the reflections of dozens of conservatives, backed up by conservative commentators on social media or on the radio, nobody had a clue what the FBI and DoJ were talking about.
Never an Insurrection
I recall being in a group chat room on Periscope (now defunct), which was filled with people who were going to the January 6 speech by president Trump. There must have been a couple of hundred people in the stream, among the commenters, host and online guests. At no time was there ever even one person who suggested that anybody should go into the Capitol. Not one.
The left is known for their narratives. They strategize and form talking points on a weekly basis. They come up with new narratives at least as often and disperse the talking points to their operatives in the media who make them the leading segments in newscasts nationwide. They then repeat the stories consistently until millions believe the fabricated story.
This is something that the Democrats have done in order to turn public opinion, make cultural changes, or win elections. Every election cycle, you can be sure that months before, the Democrats have begun a series of new narratives to defame Republicans, hurt Republican candidates or win the minds of people who only listen to newscasts on cultural issue.
We witnessed the Democrats do this with George Bush. Although there was never a sliver of evidence that Bush was a racist, and although some of his best friends were black, the Democrats convinced millions that he was a racist.
The only thing that has changed since Bush was in office is that the Democrats and the left have taken these narratives to a new level, willing to break the law, wipe their feet on the Constitution and inflict the maximum harm on other Americans.
Before Donald Trump was even in the West Wing of the White House, the attacks on him came daily. Upon entering the Oval Office, the negative stories in the media, based on false narratives, ran into the thousands. Two studies found that 94% of the media’s coverage of Trump was negative.
The Russia Collusion Hoax
Most people on the right believed that after a 19-person investigative team, headed up by a former director of the FBI, found no evidence of Russian collusion, media sources like CNN and MSNBC would be completely discredited and forced to shut their doors. These “news” organizations had brought in “experts” every day for more than two years, who attested to the credibility of unnamed sources and “evidence” that proved Trump’s guilt.
Would people on the left come to a rational conclusion that if all of this evidence, all of these continuous narratives turned out to be false, that they should abandon these sources? Not at all; their hatred of Trump blinded them to any sense of common sense and reality.
One of the more concerning aspects of the left’s more recently developed narratives is their willingness to break the law and violate the civil rights of conservative Americans. There is no threshold they are not willing to cross to gain more power to ensure that Donald Trump never runs for president again.
The New Narrative is the Most Threatening
Worse, as Trump had warned American patriots, the left would be targeting them as well. This is where the country is today. While most people on the right sensed that something was very wrong with the “white supremacist” claims, the raid on Trump’s home and then the DoJ and FBI’s newest narrative that conservatives were once again a threat to the country, is a hint that the civil rights of millions of Americans could be violated soon.
These recurring narratives are manufactured, planned and executed behind closed doors by Democrat politicians, leaders of fringe leftwing groups, the Biden administration and its cabinet members, including Wray and the AG. The talking points are then disbursed to an eager media machine that dispenses the narrative through tens of thousands of news stories, repeated several times a day.
The Democrats operatives in high tech, such as Google, ascertain that the narratives are featured prominently at the top of search results. The narrative becomes inescapable. It seems like it is everywhere until about half the nation buys into it and accepts it as truth.
If anyone questions the validity of the narrative, the left has created “fact-checker” groups, funded by organizations on the left, to appear as independent, objective arbiters of truth, that censor any conservative thought.
As the Democrats have ratcheted up the intensity and lawlessness within their narratives, they have chosen the nuclear option with the goal of not only destroying Trump, but jailing and threatening his base. The newest narrative about dangerous conservatives reacting to the Mar-a-Lago raid, and the threat they pose to the country, is yet another means to marginalize those voices who might discover cheating and election fraud in November and easily neutered those voices.
With the hiring of 87,000 armed IRS auditors, who will be fed conservative tax returns, in an effort to bring anyone on the right to their knees, the left will leverage every weapon they have while in power to destroy their political enemies. Once again, there is no truth involved in their claims or their warnings.
It’s almost as if they made the illegal, unethical and unprecedented raid on Mar-a-Lago as egregious as possible. They knew that this would enflame any person who loved the Constitution and the rule of law and was sickened by the continuous witch hunt.
The Gestapo of 2022
It’s not unlike cornering a wild animal, an animal which has done nothing wrong, and poke at it and threaten it. The holding of people guilty of only a misdemeanor or two in jail for months or years, violating their civil rights, while releasing those on the left for committing felonies, is a pattern that the left engages in purposefully. A strategy to enrage people who believe in the law and the Constitution. They want to provoke a reaction, even from one person, so they can amplify it and create another new narrative.
It’s all part of a larger strategy that makes the left and the Biden administration much like the Gestapo and the SS. This most recent move to label Trump-supporters as domestic terrorists is not only concerning but an actual threat to a large portion of the country. They would love to confiscate the guns from patriotic people and they are likely on their way to doing just that. Just like the Nazis taking guns away, the plans for freedom-loving, responsible gun owners and patriots are dismal as the country plummets into chaos.
The people who lead our top domestic law enforcement agencies have been politicized and weaponized and are no longer impartial and apolitical. Most conservatives have sat on the sidelines and Republican politicians have always taken the high road. GOP member of Congress “write letters.” The left laughs. Communism is here. Hitler’s power snuck up on many, and before they knew what to do, it was too late.
